  • how do the Bananas go down here?

    It is a bit hit & miss Kookabanus .....I think I have had 2 good bunches & 2 not so good in total.

    Here is the last bunch I harvested.....


    "Was time to chop these little Melbourne grown monkey bananas down.

    These really do eat very sweet!" :D.....( May 2018....none last year)

    In the photo where you see the Banana Plants Kookabanus ....to the left the 3 small ones around that tall one are from my first Mother plant....which is a cool climate growing Banana from which I had have the mixed luck with......That real tall one is pretty new and has not yet produced for me...but it has for the neighbour who I got It from...many times.

    The other two to the right are actually Queensland plants that a friend sent me as tiny pups...no luck with fruit on those thus far and I think they are heading into year 3.....all in all they are more just a good talking point.....getting fruit is a real treat when it happens properly.

  • I built some veggie beds for the misso last weekend. Thought to myself "beauty, six holes, a little rapid set and drop the sleepers in, I'll be on the beers by lunchtime."

    Not a chance. 3 separate reticulation lines i found from the previous home owner spread out and needing re routing before i could even start the post holes proper.

    I tell you, I'm allergic to shovels. Now this weekend i get to barrow all the soil in myself due to her having a crook back.

    Still, the produce we get should be worth the effort.




  • This is my setup here in the Yarra Valley. Few beds waiting for summer seedlings as hasn't been consistently warm yet.

    Royal Kamado, GMG Daniel Boone, Weber Baby Q, Weber OTP,Weber Jumbo Joe, Dragon Hibachi, Auspit, Multikai + a couple of portables.
